Merchandise has long been a vital way for music artists to spread awareness of their music, connect with fans, and financially support themselves.
With streaming music replacing physical media sales more and more, artists are increasingly dependent on merch sales to stay afloat.
Apparel and other accessory items continue to be the preferred choice of merchandise fans buy at shows, growing from 85% in 2017 to 95% in 2019. While media sales continue to decline as a total percentage of sales, CD, and vinyl items are still within the top 10 items sold.
90% of everything purchased is merchandise, 10% is music.
Your brand is the way in which listeners experience you and your music. Your visual identity is a part of your brand as an artist, and you have one, whether you’ve given much thought to it yet, or not. Music fans love to have something in their hands linked to the artists they appreciate and follow and we are here to help make that happen.
